Staff Reporter : Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen said that the Canadian government is not returning Bangabandhu’s self-confessed killer Noor Chowdhury despite repeated requests.
He gave this information while talking to reporters at his residence on the bank of Dhopadighi in Sylhet city on Saturday, November 18 night.
The Foreign Minister said that Noor Chowdhury took refuge in Canada after receiving the news of cancellation of the Indemnity Ordinance.
He said that Bangabandhu’s self-confessed murderer took the opportunity because Canada does not support the death penalty.
Dr A K Abdul Momen also said that Bangladesh did not get any result even after resorting to the Canadian court.
The foreign minister called upon the Bangladeshi expatriates in Canada to form public opinion in the country where Noor Chowdhury lives at least once a month by demonstrating.
He also said that 5 self-confessed killers of Bangabandhu are still absconding. One of them is in Canada and one is in America. No trace of the other 3 was found.
The foreign minister also said that expatriates would be rewarded if they could provide information about the fugitive killers.
